Tomorrow We Will Sing
By Bro. Ken Ervin
When the children of Israel
were delivered from the cruelty of the Egyptians by the mighty hand of God, one of the
first things they did was to sing to the Lord a new song. In Exodus 15: this song is
recorded. In verse 15 of this song we have these words, "In your unfailing Love you
will lead the people you have redeemed. In your strength you will guide them to you Holy
Dwelling". In verses 20-21 it is said, "then Mariam the prophetess, Aaron's
sister, took a tambourine in her hand, and all the women followed her, with tambourines
and dancing. Miriam sang to them, "Sing to the Lord, for He is highly exalted. The
horse and the rider He has hurled into the sea." Yes, the songs of Praise were lifted
up to the Lord who had delivered them. They were thankful and they rejoiced in their God.
In not some distant tomorrow we the believers in Christ will have the wonderful privilege of singing a new song to the King of Kings and Lord of Lord's. We will sing of His wonderful love and marvelous salvation. In His New Kingdom will have peace and love; righteousness and justice will be the rule for all the world. The Bible consistently announces that history is on the move--toward a planned culmination. This present age can not continue much longer as it is marred by Satans evil influence and by a society with twisted values and a humanity lost in its dark passions. The institutional church can no longer lead a world into salvation when it has fallen victim to one compromise after another.
When the authority of scripture is no longer held as the final word, then who has the final word. When Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth, and the life, and no man comes to the Father but by me." How is it, that now the church seems to have another view, there are other ways that lead to God they may say. This is truth enough that the judgement of God does begin at the house of God. Some tomorrow history will reach its intended end and God's decisive intervention will forever separate light from darkness, good from evil, truth from false. As true believers we look upon this time with great expectation, Jesus coming will bring a new song in our hearts. Whatever suffering we will face will seem unimportant in view of the glory that is to come. We will toss aside the playthings of this world in order to win Christ and be found by Him. We will look at the ways of the world and speak a decisive no!, to its value system. Instead, we will take on the value system of Christ and His Kingdom.
Although some future events are not clear, there are some that are very clear to those whos heart is open to God's eternal plan. First-- the world will be cast into a worldwide tribulation. Second--Jesus will return to this earth, this time not as a babe in a manger, but as the Great and Mighty King the Lord of Host. Third--He is coming to establish His kingdom on Earth. How close are we living to this God's tomorrow? Some believe it is very close at hand, even at the door. Isaiah 46:11 reads as follows, "What I have said, that will I bring about; what I have planned, that will I do."
We have now entered into a New Millennium and the year 2000. History is being guided forward by the plan of God. We don't know how many tomorrows are left, but we do know that what God has said, that will He do. So, let those of us who believe, be excited, for in not so distant tomorrow, "WE WILL SING A NEW SONG". God bless you and Happy 2000: Bro. Ken
